MO State Senator: Brown Shooting Was 'An Assassination'

There must be an arrest, says Chappelle-Nadal

On MSNBC's The Ed Show on Monday, Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal said that the results of a private autopsy, which were released last night, show that Michael Brown was "assassinated" by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

"I do have to tell you, looking at the autopsy report last evening, um, it looks like Michael Brown was just killed. It was an assassination, and many of the community members are waiting for this police officer to be arrested. They're waiting for a grand jury and an indictment. And so, until that happens, I still see unrest. And many of the people want to continue to protest in peace."

Schultz also asked the senator if she felt there would continue to be unrest until and unless there is "legal action taken against the shooter." 

"Yes, there must be an arrest," said Chappelle-Nadal.
